CHAMPAIGN -- Students are taking a stand against prejudice and hate. Monday, 8th graders from Edison Middle School held a Memorial Museum.

Students made sculptures for parents and other classes to come see. Some shared stories about the history of prejudice and hate throughout the world. Others explained the dangerous effects racism and bullying can have.

The museum was also a competition for the students. People voted for their favorite and the winner gets to choose a prize.
